Week 5 Report

29/10/2007 - Term 1, Week 5 (Start of)


Following is the work done over the last week:

  • A decision has been made regarding the proposed change to the specification. It was decided that the aim and scope of the project would remain unchanged.
  • Some research has been done (and concluded) concerning the data storage requirements of the system. It has been decided that MusicXML will be a used throughout the system. It has yet to be decided exactly how the system will use this to display the score to the user at the browser.
  • Research has begun into what sort of development tools will be used throughout the project. So far Ruby on Rails, Python, PHP and Javascript have been considered. A conclusion has not yet been reached.
Progress Evaluation

Significantly fewer goals have been acheived than expected. It had been the intention that, by the end of this week, all research and requirement-elicitation type tasks would have been completed. However, I remain in the throes of data structure and development tool research.

Given that the essential requirements of the system are now well established in my mind, the formality of producing a list of requirements is not hindering the design of the system. However it would still be useful to have this documentation.

Current Project State 

As anticipated in last weeks report, the Analysis phase is going to have to continue through the next week, despite the original intention to have begun design work by now. The project timetable will be updated.

All outstanding Analysis-style tasks need to be completed by the end of this week.

Week 5 Tasks
  1. Finalise choice developments tools
  2. Finalise choice of data storage systems
  3. Consider graphics requirements
  4. Continue the development of prototypes of futher sophistication
  5. Produce a set list of requirements
